Cairn Energy Publishes Positive Well-Test Results Off Senegal

The Edinburgh-based oil explorer, Cairn Energy said it successfully flow-tested the SNE-2 well in the Sangomar Offshore block at a rate of 8,000 barrels a day, Bloomberg reported citing a company’s statement.

The well  situated around 100km off the coast of Senegal has been appraising the 2014 discovery of crude in the nearby SNE-1 well, wrote Reuters. The company, whose projects stretch from Greenland to Senegal, said in August that it expected to start drilling operations at its oilfields in the west African country in Q4 .

Cairn Energy’s Chief Executive, Simon Thomson said: “The results help to confirm the overall scale and extent of the resource base in Senegal and further appraisal activity is expected to lead to future revision of the estimates.”

Cairn Energy is the operator and 40% owner of three blocks off the coast of Senegal, while other stakeholders include oil major ConocoPhillips with a 35% stake.
